With the snow melting, it’s time to start thinking of the summer garden. There are some excellent resources shared on a recent (4/8/14) webinar Planning for a Successful Gardening Year.

Gardening resources

Print copies of these and many other resources are available from the Learning Store.

Another good source of information is the Wisconsin Master Gardener program. This dedicated group of county Extension educators and community volunteers shares their expertise for successful gardening year round.

Composing information 

A discussion of successful gardening often involves questions related to composting. This is one area where food safety matters!
